How can we have people in power who see the end of the world as a good thing?


So Much For That

So it looks like Albert Haynesworth won’t be stomping on any heads in a Pewter and Red anytime soon:

Moto Moto won’t be clogging the middle of the Buc’s D-Line anytimes soon. Dan Snyder strikes again.

The Bucs are a whopping 61 million under the salary cap, so here is to hoping that they begin adding pieces instead of continuing to remove them.

"Who’s My Favorite Player?"

I would be lying if I said I was not suprised, disappointed, and sad that the Buccaneers decided to cut ties with 11-time Pro Bowler, and lifetime Buccaneer Derrick Brooks yesterday. Brooks was the type of player who you would forget was on your team because he did his job with such a quiet professionalism and was so good at doing it that you just grew comfortable knowing he was there.

“Who’s my favorite player?”

Here It Is

Gov Jindal’s enterance with an audible “Oh God” from what I assumed at the time was Keith Olbermann which is Hilarious. I was actually thinking the same thing as he made his Mr. Jindal’s Neighborhood enterance.

Bobby Jindal (real name Piyush Jindal) which if I were a crazy right wing nut-bag would sound an awful lot like a Terrorists Name (you know, like how Barack Obama must be a Terrorist Manchurian Candidate because his name sounds like Osama) is a joke to me. Check his Wikipedia page and see some of his stances on social issues.

Actually, I’ll do it for you, this is my blog:

Abortion and stem cell research
Jindal has a 100% pro-life voting record according to the National Right to Life Committee. He does not condemn medical procedures meant to save the life of a pregnant woman that would indirectly cause the termination of the pregnancy. In 2003 Jindal was reported to have stated that he did not object to the use of emergency contraception in the case of rape if the victim requests it. He opposes embryonic stem cell research[36] and voted against increasing federal funding to expand embryonic stem cell lines.

Same-sex marriage
Jindal opposes the legalization of same-sex marriage, and has voted for the Federal Marriage Amendment to restrict marriage to a union between one man and one woman. In December 2008, Jindal announced the formation of the Louisiana Commission on Marriage and Family, including individuals representing organizations that oppose same-sex marriage, including Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, Gene Mills, the executive director of the Louisiana Family Forum and Mike Johnson, senior legal counsel for the Alliance Defense Fund.

Civil liberties

Jindal voted yes on making the PATRIOT Act permanent, voted in favor of the 2006 Military Commissions Act, supported a constitutional amendment banning flag burning, and voted for the Real ID Act of 2005. Jindal has an “A” rating from Gun Owners of America.

Intelligent design
Jindal supports the teaching of “intelligent design” in public schools. Despite calls for a veto from groups as diverse as the the Roman Catholic Church, the ACLU, the National Review, and Jindal’s own biology professors at Brown University. Jindal signed the Louisiana Academic Freedom Act in 2008.

Consider this my official endorsement of Jindal for the Republican Ticket in 2012. He represents every back-asswards social issue that Repbulicans are losing ground on.

Governor Jindal, Sean Penn has this to say to you:
